Why We Like It: Two words tell the story: fun and functional. The ultra- sharp 13-inch blade with nonstick coating cuts through the firmer rind of melons, such as canteloupe and honeydew, and doesn’t stick to the fruit. In addition to protecting the blade, the orange plastic protective sheath has a ring at the end which is perfect for scooping out the pesky melon seeds. The green handle makes it easy to find in the knife rack or drawer.
Details: The Melon Knife Colori joins other speciality knives made by Kuhn Rikon.The Japanese carbon steel blade, with seed cut-outs, and protective sheath retails for $25 and is available at Sur La Table.
